    I have been working at Abbott Medical Optics full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Everyone is reasonable and easy to work with. I feel nearly everyone I've met in interested in solving problems, which is very helpful. There is a new division leader person who seems very engaged.

    Cons

    My work does not impact some of my goals. Most of the Cons would be true at any job.

    Pros

    Abbott pays their employees well with bonuses and annual pay increases each year. Great benefits package.

    Cons

    Abbott has outsourced all Finance jobs to India eliminating thousands of positions for US employees to save costs.

    Advice to Management

    Don't eliminate positions of your loyal US employees who truly care about quality service to your internal and external customers replacing them with an outsourcing company in India.

    Pros

    Good benefits, nice location and co-workers that really care.

    Cons

    High turnover, burned out staff. Management prefers to listen to consultants they bring in that do not understand products or regulations. Employee expertise and background not considered when implementing change.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to seasoned employees. Don't expect employees to work when they are on approved vacation.

    Pros

    Workers are okay, mostly positive.

    Cons

    Small group acts like a big. Management microscope workers daily, but never understand who does what and who knows what.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing and no one would like to work there.

    Pros

    Abbott has excellent benefits for employees. Working environment is respectful and others work well together..

    Cons

    Too bit to be a nimble division/company, too small to lead their idustry. The company ends up following, not leading.

    Advice to Management

    Stop focusing so much on Refractive and long shots. Focus energy on developed markets and growing business.

    I worked at Abbott Medical Optics full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Benefits are very good, great retirement plan; acceptable to good work environment.

    Cons

    Field Service Mgmt needs to be replaced with more educated, proactive, less prejudiced mgmt, which has been in place since the VISX days and suffers from "atherosclerosis"; less benefits each day and more metrics and restrictions each day for service personnel. Few chances of promotion to Sr Field Engineer and even less for a Technical support position.

    Advice to Management

    Look at your talent across the board in terms of what they bring to the job, and stop showing so much favoritism to the old 'VISX" engineers; time alone on the job does not a good employee make. Look at Field Service mgmt, a change is needed at the highest level.

    Pros

    Easy work, not bad for entry level people or those with families. Fairly easy for work/life balance

    Cons

    Not much opportunity. Raise and promotions are very very slow, if at all. Not very innovative products. The technology here is not very cutting edge. No gym/food perks and the company news is barely transparent

    Advice to Management

    Not much to say as you either like the system or you don't, but not much advice to management as they cannot really change the culture.
